Tim Gundry

Senior Lecturer & Subject Leader BA (Hons) Commercial Photography for Fashion, Advertising & Editorial

Prior to working in education and photography, Tim had a long career in the commercial sector and creative industries. He worked in marketing, branding and advertising on both client and agency side, and before becoming a freelance photographer in 2000, was a director of a Brighton-based design agency.

Tim graduated with a 1st class, BA (Hons) Photomedia and Design Communication from Plymouth College of Art in 2005 and gained a distinction in the Professional Qualifying Exam for the British Institute of Professional Photography. After obtaining a PGCE from the University of Plymouth in 2006, Tim joined the staff team in 2006 as a lecturer in Photography and Digital Imaging, and in 2013 was appointed as programme leader for Undergraduate Photography. In 2016 he was awarded the Association of Photographers Tutor of the Year award. In 2017 he completed an MA in Photography at the college.

Tim’s photographic practice is concerned with using photography to explore the social and cultural histories of the South West and how these become inscribed on the landscape. His work has been published and exhibited nationally in the ‘Landscape Photographer of the Year’ awards, and in 2009 was featured in the ‘What Haunts You?’ exhibition at the Photographers’ Gallery in London.

Tim’s research interests are concerned with pedagogic practice. He is an active member of the Association for Photography in Higher Education and is currently working on a Pedagogic research project involving the curation of academic texts to improve student engagement with critical and contextual studies.
